Williams, Helen Maria
Boston, 1792. Good plus.. Two volumes in one. 137; [4],138pp. Original calf boards, rebacked with original gilt spine label laid down. Corners worn, light scuffing to boards, spine ends chipping. 18th-century American bookplate on front pastedown. Light tanning; scattered, occasionally heavy foxing. The scarce, first American editions of letters regarding experiences in France and of the French Revolution by British poet and author Helen Maria Williams. Williams was an ardent supporter of the Revolution and also backed the abolitionist movement in England. "The French Revolution had a great impact on Williams's own life and literary career. She went to France in the summer of 1790, and her enthusiastic book about her travels, Letters Written in France (1790), would become the first of eight volumes of eyewitness accounts, later known as the Letters from France (1790-96). She explained in her first book that the historic Bastille day celebration in Paris was 'not a time in which distinctions of country were remembered. It was the triumph of human kind....' In September 1791 Williams returned to France for an extended stay, announcing her departure to her readers in a poem entitled A Farewell for Two Years to England, which the Analytical Review praised for its 'happy mixture of energy and tenderness', written 'on her favourite topic, liberty' (1791, 188). Almost a year later, her second volume of Letters from France was published during a brief visit to London" -- DNB. The present Boston editions swiftly followed the London works, with the second group of letters here … [Click Below for Full Description]

Moseley, Walter Michael
Worcester: Printed by J. and J. Holl and sold by J. Robson, 1792. Octavo in half-sheets (21 x 13 cm.), vii, [2], 348 pages. Illustrated with an engraved frontispiece, an additional engraved title page, and four plates depicting a variety of bows, quivers, and arrowheads. "Errata" slip tipped onto final leaf. FIRST EDITION. A classic work which traces the history of the bow and arrow across several nations and periods, including Britain, France, the Roman Empire, Hellenistic Greece, Mycenea and the Mideast. Chapter 11 describes royal decrees that promoted or restricted archery training. This was the first standard work on archery to appear since Roger Ascham's Toxophilus (1544). It was very popular upon publication, and a contemporary reviewer in the Analytical Review of History and Literature wrote: "without hesitation we promise, not only the lover of archery, but the elegant scholar, and the antiquarian, much entertainment from this elaborate and truly classical performance" (page 393). Bound in contemporary full red morocco; gilt-tooled border, and a handsomely tooled, compartmented spine, with tan spine label. With the binding stamp of Sotheran. Some splitting to joints (but holding). Overall a very handsome copy. Near very good. With a presentation inscription from one of the great book collectors of all time: "Stitchel House A present from the Duke of Roxburgh". [CBEL II 1554; Lake, Bibliography of Archery, page 212].

[Samuel Johnson], Arthur Murphy, Esq.
London: T. Longman et al. 1792 WORKS OF SAMUEL JOHNSON Complete Excellent Condition. Ask any questions before purchase. Payment expected within 48 hours. Shipped via media or priority either insured. Beautiful set in excellent condition. Study the photos to see the exact condition of the exterior of the set. I would say 98% of the pages are as clean and bright as you see in the one photo of pages in good condition. Notice the sticker in the interior cover of Volume 1 showing this set was sold through the long lived and very reputable Brick Row Bookshop Inc. out in San Francisco. The only issue with the books is that 4 volumes have intermittent foxing. Volume 11 about 15 pages, Volume 3 about 10 pages, Volume 10 about 30 pages. Volume 7 has two pages that have very light spilled liquid stains. Volume 9 title page a little more dirty than any of the others. Only a few pages were folded in the upper right corner (maybe 10 at most). No rips or tears or holes in pages. Clean smell to the books. Text blocks still firm and do not crack open to certain pages. On the exteriors, the covers are all firmly attached and the only volume that has a little separation starting is the back cover of 12 (less that inch). Although you can see the covers in the photos, I will mention that there are little scratches or chips out of the leather here and there even though none of them are significant. So while this set is not perfect it is definitely a top quality set that one would expect to find in high end retail stores for twice the price. I will send any extra photos of anything you request bu … [Click Below for Full Description]

M.S.' and 'XXVIII' inked to spine, speckled edges; a little dusty; 'Phillipps MS 4925' to front free endpaper.A fascinating manuscript compendium of cautionary tales of famous lovers and love affairs in the courts of Europe in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, compiled by the Italian count Giovanni Battista Raimondo de Silva, and formerly in the possession of the great manuscript collector Sir Thomas Phillipps (1792-1872).The volume opens with an account of the life of Anne Boleyn, second wife of Henry VIII and mother of Elizabeth I, who reigned as Queen of England from 1533 until her execution in 1536, apparently translated from a French text by the Bolognese historian Antonio Francesco Ghiselli (1634-1730). Anne's biography is followed by accounts of the lives of two of the famous Mancini sisters, known as the Mazarinettes, who were brought by their uncle Cardinal Mazarin to the court of Louis XIV to make advantageous marriages, aided by their beauty and huge dowries: Hortense Mancini, Duchess of Mazarin (1646-1699), wife of the unstable and prudish Armand-Charles de … [Click Below for Full Description]

HEMSTERHUIS (Frans)
Paris, H.J. Jansen, 1792. 2 volumes in-8, plein veau havane, dos à nerfs (rel. moderne), viij, 310 p. et 323 p., vignettes, culs-de-lampe et 3 planches dépliantes. Première édition illustrée de 3 planches dont 2 dépliantes et de jolies vignettes. Chaque oeuvre figure sous page de titre particulière. Bien que diffusée confidentiellement, l'oeuvre d'Hemsterhuis exerça une influence majeure sur ses contemporains : Diderot, qui le fréquenta, le commenta, ou Jacobi dont la 'Lettre à Hemsterhuis sur Spinoza' est insérée dans cette édition, Herder, Goethe puis Hölderlin, Novalis ou Schlegel. "Les thèmes des données immédiates de la conscience et du retour à la vie simple qu‘illustrera Bergson sont toujours présents ( ). Bien avant les romantiques, il proclame l’union de la poésie et de la philosophie dans un éloge de l’enthousiasme qui met l’imagination à la source de toute appréhension de la vérité ( ). L’apport fondamental de Hemsterhuis à la pensée de son temps est de l’avoir, par son platonisme, écarté de tout empirisme et de tout matérialisme sans pour autant la limiter à une fonction critique, mais en lui restituant son sens métaphysique" (J.-L. Vieillard-Baron, 'Hemsterhuis platonicien', in XVIIIe siècle, VII, 1975, p. 129-146). Sur l'importance de l'oeuvre d'Hemsterhuis, sa singularité et ses recherches visant à "retrouver l'originalité profonde du spinozisme et à la dégager des perversions modernes", cf. P. Vernière, 'Spinoza et la pensée française', p. 668-673. (R.E. Stoddard, 'Hemsterhuis, bibliography', "The Book collector", vol. 50/2, n°13, p. 197).

[AUTOGRAPH]. BAUDIN, Charles.
Collection of 14 signed letters, all but 3 autographs, written by Charles Baudin (1792-1854) and dated 1842-1849, when he served as Maritime Prefect at Toulon. He was one of the leading naval figures of the 19th century, whose naval service, mostly as Vice Admiral, began under Napoleon Bonaparte and ended in the early days of the Second Empire. Charles Baudin lost his right arm in battle in 1808 and had to write with his left hand, leading to the distinctive back-sloped handwriting evident in his signature and the 10 autograph letters. All letters are in good or very good condition. Letters 4, 7 and 14 are very slightly browned and 14 also shows some small stains. Letter 2 has a corner torn off and a small hole (neither affecting the text). A valuable primary source for French naval affairs in the last decade of Louis Philippe I's reign.l For Charles Baudin: Howgego, 1800-1850, B16 (see also B17).

CHAPPELL, Edward.
[10], XIX, [1], 270, [2] pp.First edition of a travel account describing Newfoundland, the Saint Lawrence River, Labrador, and the surrounding areas, the Indian and Eskimo inhabitants and the natural history of the region, by Lieutenant Edward Chappell (1792-1861). "[Chappell] joined the sloop of war Rosamond, which sailed to Newfoundland in 1813 and Hudson Bay in 1814 to patrol the British North American fisheries. During these voyages he recorded his observations in two journals, which were later published as Voyage of his majesty's ship Rosamond to Newfoundland and the southern coast of Labrador and Narrative of a voyage to Hudson's Bay. In the first of these journals Chappell described the summer cruise of 1813 in Newfoundland and Labrador waters, at a time when almost everyone lived along the coastline and by means of the fishery. After reaching St John's at the end of May the Rosamond sailed around the south and west coasts of Newfoundland on her way to guard the fisheries on the Labrador coast, returning by the same route in autumn, and left St John's for England in December. During this voyage Chappell noted the isolated settlements of whites, Indians, and Inuit (Eskimos) on the west coast of Newfoundland and the coast of Labrador; the crowded streets and lively social life of St John's at the end of the fishing season; and extraordinary natural features, such as the unusual castle-like rock formations of Chateau Bay in the Strait of Belle Isle" (Dictionary of Canadian biography).

Edition Originale rarissime de cette curieuse thèse sur les maladies et les troubles physiologiques dûs à l'excès ou à l'insuffisance d'activité sexuelle.En pleine Révolution Française, l'auteur insiste notamment sur les maladies résultant de l'abstinence des prêtres et de la chasteté des bonnes soeurs: hystérie, "fureurs utérines", onanisme, folie, nécrose des organes sexuels, etc.Fait notable, la dédicace préliminaire est adressée à la mère de l'auteur et le titre porte en exergue une citation de Voltaire: "L'abstinence ou l'excès ne fit jamais d'heureux".Cette ouvrage est d'une telle rareté que nous n'avons pu en localiser aucun autre exemplaire dans les collections publiques ou les catalogues de référence.Bon exemplaire à grandes marges.

London: E. Hodson, 1792. First edition. Two volumes bound in one. Contemporary tree calf with red morocco label to spine. Front joint starting but holding well. A lovely, square copy. Mild offsetting from pastedowns. Ownership stamp of A.V. Uddman to front pastedown and header of first title. Internally fresh and bright. Collating vi, [1, blank], ix-xii, 9-200; [4], 5-192: bound without the subscriber's list to the rear, else complete, including titles and half titles to both. A scarce compilation of educational poetry directed toward female readers, ESTC records only 13 copies (9 of those in the US). It is presently the only copy on the market. The anonymous male compiler of the present volume had a female readership in mind; women were, after all, an expanding market in the purchase of poetry books, etiquette, and novels. "In selecting the following poetical bouquet," he writes in the preface, "his chief care has been that whilst he considered the various tastes of the public, he endeavored, as much as possible, to blend instruction with amusement." And though he admits that he hopes the book will grace the library shelves of "the youth of both sexes," he has striven to avoid any work which could "offend the ear of Chastity." The two volumes of poetry that follow are in some ways typical of the period. Numerous entries focus on flowers, beauty, love, and friendship. Among the "most celebrated" authors, the compiler includes expected contemporaries Thomas Gray, Lord Lyttleton, and William Cowper. But he also incorporates a number of accomplished women writers -- among them … [Click Below for Full Description]

CHARLES IV, King of Spain].
[2], 50 pp.Extremely rare first (and only early) edition of a decree of 15 January 1792 by King Charles IV of Spain. It establishes a college in Granada for educating American and Philippine youth of noble birth. The decree specifies a broad curriculum of political, military, ecclesiastical and legal subjects, with the intent to educate the students for royal service. Besides these theoretical topics, the students would also learn equitation (horsemanship), dancing, fencing and other arts appropriate to their social status. The decree also describes admissions procedures, guidelines for the curriculum and administration, qualifications for the staff and rules of conduct extensively and precisely. Students, for example, are not allowed to use slaves or personal servants, and twenty scholarship students are to be exempted from all fees (one or two each from specified provinces in the Americas and the Philippines), while other students have to pay fees on a sliding scale. The decree gives a glimpse of the regimen and habits, but also the education, in a royal school for noble young boys.

NEDERLANDSE ZENDELINGEN IN INDONESI??Nederlandsch Oost-Indi? en het Nederlandsch Zendelinggenootschap. (1792-1872.)? Houtgravure vervaardigd in 1872 door Richard Brend?amour, gedrukt bij M. Wijt & Zonen te Rotterdam. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. (blad) 49,3 x 67,3 cm.Gedenkblad bij de viering ?van 75-jarige bestaan van het Nederlandsch Zendelinggenootschap in Nederlands-Indi?. Centraal kaarten van Minahasa, Oost-Java en andere Indische eilanden. Hieromheen zestien Indische gezichten. Onderaan drie bouwwerken. Tussen de sc?nes een overdaad aan bladwerk, ranken, vruchten en gebruiksvoorwerpen.Het Nederlandsch Zendelinggenootschap (afgekort als NZG) werd op 17 december 1797 opgericht onder invloed van de in 1795 opgerichte London Missionary Society (LMS). Van zending is in de beginperiode eigenlijk nauwelijks sprake, aanvankelijk omdat de bijna onafgebroken oorlog met het Verenigd Koninkrijk de verbindingen met de koloni?n nagenoeg onmogelijk maakte, na 1816 omdat de zendelingen vaak werden ingeschakeld in de reguliere zielzorg van de Indische Kerk die een tekort aan predikanten had. De zendelingen waren met name verantwoordelijk voor de geestelijke verzorging van de inlandse gemeenten, werkten voor het garnizoen en hielden toezicht op het volksonderwijs, dit alles onder supervisie van predikanten van de Indische Kerk. Later kwam de echte zending meer op de voorgrond te staan.Het NZG ontplooide in de loop der tijd tal van activiteiten op medisch-, onderwijs- en sociaal gebied. Ook ontplooide men diverse min of meer commerci?le activiteiten. Zo werden er drukkerijen o.a. in … [Click Below for Full Description]

SIR GEORGE HAYTER [1792-1871] Artist
1792. Etching on title and 45 plates on laid India paper, one double-page; slight damage to one corner of a few early leaves, a little spotting to title and contents leaves. Large folio (15 x 11.25in) orig. green morocco backed boards, spine gilt, worn, some scuffing, Sir George Hayter [1792-1871] an accomplished portrait painter was Principal Pa inter in Ordinary to Queen Victoria, to whom he taught etching. Maurice Grant in his 'Dictionary of British Etchers' is full of praise for Hayter's skill, who he considers is not sufficiently recognised. This publication shows a selection of more than half of the plates he executed. The subjects include portraits, animals, bandits, religious and some after Old Masters, and most were made in the 1820s or earlier.
